Wishing everyone joy and peace for the new year.
I just finished this new stocking for my mother-in-law who loves visiting lighthouses.
The designs come from two sources, www.sweaterscapes.com and “And a Time to Knit Stockings” by Katherine Pence.
Here’s the back.
The intarsia part was done in the round using a new method described by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts in the new version of Knitting in the Old Way and in the winter 2003 issue of Interweave Knits. I highly recommend this method over others.
Hi, do you knit by picking or throwing?
Season’s greetings !
That’s a fantastic stocking.
Throwing feels more natural for me and helps me regulate my tension. When I knit with two colors I pick with one color and throw with the other.
Emma – thanks. I hope you and your family have a happy new year.
Hi ! The stocking is very beautiful. I wish I can knit intersia like you.
Season’s greeting !
That is just gorgeous.
I will have to learn intarsia in the round this year.
